Opera Mini has no support for webfonts, so it can't load Dashicons in their current state. Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 7 is the other major browser with this problem. Supporting these two browsers would require adding javascript that could detect the lack of font-face support (Modernizr does this) and add a body class like .no-font-face (or whatever), then use the .no-font-face class to create fallback styles where we replace the CSS 'content' with a background-image icon.

We should figure out what to do here before freeze. Perhaps broken is okay for Opera Mini and IE on WP7, but we should make sure we're okay with that.

I am completely fine with this.

Opera Mini is a simple proxied web browser service with a focus on reducing mobile bandwidth. It is not intended to run modern web applications.

I'm okay with that. As a non-blocker we could improve what people on those browsers see, like a BrowseHappy message.

From talking to the MP6 team about our available options, it sounds like it would take some time to create a tool to reliably export Dashicons to PNGs. We'd want something at least semi-automated so we're not exporting new images by hand every time an icon is added or changed. I think it would be fair to consider this a future enhancement.

Same issue as #26369, no support for web fonts. Closing as a duplicate.
